  • If you wanna leave then just go
    'Cause I can't get no sun in your shadow
    If you ain't gonna love me or fight me
    Then I'm gonna turn the other cheek and go
    Go, go, go

    'Cause I've been hangin' on the telephone lines
    That you always told me
    Now I can't let go
    I believed in them the last time
    You warm me with your words
    But now I'm tired and I'm getting cold
    So cold

    If you wanna leave then just go
    'Cause I can't get no sun in your shadow
    If you ain't gonna love me or fight me
    Then I'm gonna turn the other cheek and go
    Go, go, go

    Turn the other cheek and go, go, go

    'Cause every time I push
    You hold me just close enough to keep me here
    So pull your anchor up
    And head to shore or sail away
    If you wanna leave, if you wanna leave
    Then just go

    'Cause I've been hangin' on the telephone
    Lines that you always told me
    Now I can't let go
    I believed in them the last time
    You told me you would try
    But boy this is getting old
    So old

    If you wanna leave then just go
    'Cause I can't get no sun in your shadow
    If you ain't gonna love me or fight me
    Then I'm gonna turn the other cheek and go, go, go

    Turn the other cheek and go, go, go

    I'll better off alone (I'll go)
    Better off alone (I'll go) Writer/s: COLBIE CAILLAT, JUSTIN YOUNG
